Ok so here is my situation. I have a low gpa for on the law school scale. It's a 2.7...I know it isn't great. My first two years of college I just dicked around, went out drinking all the time and really did not give two shits about grades. All I cared about was my sport and going out. However after my sophomore year I began to pick it up and I grew up. My Junior and Senior GPA is a 3.5 (which I know still isn't eye grabbingly amazing but its good for me.) Over last summer I worked and studied extraordinarily hard and got a 165 LSAT (once again this is good for me). So my stats are a 2.7gpa/ 165 LSAT. Do you think any law schools will consider my junior and senior gpa instead or at least consider the improvement? Also could my athletic achievements help me? I was a D1 athlete, two-time team captain, two time 1st Team All-Conference and I got Player of the Year my senior year. I really do think I excell in team situations and I do think I am good leader, do you think they will see this from my achievements? I realize Harvard and Yale might be looking for a different breed but what can I get into? It would be great if you could tell me some safety's, about right's and the reachers. I am not a naturally smart person but my greatest attribute is that I can work hard. Harder than most people and I know how to push myself. I really do not want these two years of getting all caught up in college life to ruin my career ambitions. Last thing I went to a respectable top 30 liberal arts college (Lafayette College). I am one year out of college. Thanks for your help.
